Gather your grunts, and get ready for multiplayer warfare
The Bitmap Brothers’ Z The Game plus
out now on iOS
Digital publisher Kavcom Ltd is proud to announce the
addition of Real-Time Multiplayer over Wi-Fi to the classic Bitmap
Brothers RTS ‘Z’ The Game.
iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad can now play “Z”
head to head against their Game Centre friends.
This Update to the seminal Bitmap title places the gamer in a
multiplayer breathtaking race to capture territory and resources in
real-time from their Game Centre opponent. By
taking control of an army of six different types of robot
soldiers, including the faithful grunt, you will slug it out in a
land grab for space supremacy across five planets, each with unique
terrain, ranging from arctic wasteland to lands of fire and lava.
Whilst each of the robot soldiers is capable of performing up to
forty different actions, they possess a unique personality trait,
adding another dimension to the tactical gameplay; will they carry
our your orders and march into the jaws of hell, or will they
chicken and run?
Our developer partner Tick Tock Games has also increased the
screen resolution on iPhone and iPod Touch which has greatly
increased the visible game map. This much requested feature brings
the iPhone game play experience closer to the iPad.
“We know the iOS community has been waiting feverishly for
Multiplayer “Z” to arrive”, commented Tony
Kavanagh. ‘TickTock has used their extensive network
programming experience to make this possible.’
